It turned out to be a good thing. They did something for me they meant to deliberately NOT do. In fact, they bank on not providing this kind of experience. Thanks, Red Carpet Guys, for making me feel better about my appearance.
Yes. That's what I said.
Someone on the Red Carpet looked at least as good as I looked going to church yesterday morning. This is not my opinion. It is fact. You saw it, too. Right?
The first one is an actress I have long admired
"No biggie", I thought, "She is just not the drop dead glamor type".
Next up, "No Name Interviewer Gal", calls the actress with whom she is speaking, "One of the most glamorous women here". Then asks, "Which is most important, Jewelry, Hair, Makeup, or Gown?" (Really? I bet the actress thought so too, but I digress.) SOMEBODY, spent thousands of dollars on a dress and about $48 on the rest. Her non-descript accessories could have come from Claire's in the mall.
I could have jumped for joy. From the neck up, either woman appeared suitably made up to sit in my living room with a cup of hot tea and a bored six year-old. Apparently, these lucky glamor icons have made it so big they can now choose to show up on the Oscar Red Carpet made up like a middle aged, middle class, middle-sized housewife from middle America.
Were you there? Did you see it? Can you name the actresses?
